We stayed at Al Teatro B&B for 5 nights. Venice was the last stop for us on a 2 week Italian vacation. I can not begin to say enough good things about our stay here.
We stayed in the Amber Room - a very nicely sized room with king size bed, large private bath and a small, but adequate balcony/terrace overlooking the canal. The bed was very comfortable, the room, and the entire B&B, were immaculate.
Eleanora, the owner/proprietor, could not have been a better hostess. She was always very quick to respond to emails. She provided explicit instructions on how to reach the B&B from the train station, which could not have been easier. Every morning, while sitting at breakfast, she asked us, and the other guests if we needed any assistance with directions, recommendations, or any other way she could help, with what we wanted to do in or around Venice that day. Upon our arrival, she provided us a map of Venice, and marked where the B&B was located, and then marked on the map any other points of interest, restaurants, etc that she recommended, directions for vaporetto use, and on and on.
Breakfast was typical European style breakfast with a variety of cereals, yogurts, bread/pastries, meat and cheese, coffee, tea, juice, milk. There's no excuse to leave the breakfast table hungry.
The location of the property is PERFECT. A short walk to Piazza San Marco, but far enough away that it was quiet. A slightly longer walk in the other direction gets you to either the Accademia or the Rialto bridge and market. It is a very short walk (approximately 3 minutes) from the Giglio vaporetto stop, with no bridges to cross.
The canal below our balcony was heavily trafficked by gondolas. It was lovely to have a bit of time in the afternoon/evening, open the windows and listen to the gondolas float by with their musicians and singers aboard.
It never felt as though we were staying at a B&B, but rather staying with a friend. We definitely hope to return to Venice one day, and will look no further than the Al Teatro B&B for our accomodations.
